  • Running some deer hounds Saturday and they got behind something and chased it around for about an hour. The dogs stopped but kept barking and moving a few feet now and then. I had a gut feeling that it was a bear. Had about a 700 yard hike through the woods to get to them. Got there and saw a big bear swatting at 15 or so dogs. I drew my Judge revolver and as soon as he stood up, the dogs backed off and I took my shot. He ran away and turned and came back towards me. A second shot to the head dropped him. 420 pounds. Killed near Gold Point NC.

    Really thick beard and 1.25' spurs. The actual thickest part of the beard is 10.5 inches but some strands reach to 11. Came in quiet trailing a lone hen and gave me a shot at 45 yards. A Winchester Longbeard 3.5 #6 took him down right in his tracks. Got him in Martin County on 4-14-2018 at 9am.
